Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand is proud to become the first automotive brand accredited as a living wage employer in New Zealand.
As the number one vehicle brand in New Zealand, Mitsubishi Motors has a responsibility and desire to lead from the front and champion the living wage cause.
Chief Operating Officer Daniel Cook says, “The cost of living crisis currently impacting hard-working New Zealanders places an increased responsibility on employers to do right by their employees.”
“At Mitsubishi, we view our staff as a family, and it’s important we enable our family members to thrive in this environment of escalating costs.”
Mitsubishi Motors has long valued its employees and supported the living wage ideology – in its own business and beyond.
“After becoming an accredited living wage employer, we turned our attention to third party contractors,” says Cook.
“We are delighted to announce that they are now also paying the living wage.
Cook challenges other vehicle brands to do the same.
“I would like to challenge our competitors in New Zealand to help support the prosperity of our people and local communities here in New Zealand by joining the living wage movement.
“Our industry has enjoyed a very successful couple of years, and we have asked a lot of our people through Covid and the resulting boom in vehicle sales. Now is the time to return that support.”
In addition to the standard four weeks of annual leave, Mitsubishi Motors is offering a week’s health and wellbeing leave to support our staff in spending time with family and friends.
“Time with family and friends is a critical part of the kiwi culture. Combined with workplace flexibility, we hope to restore balance to the lives of our dedicated teams.”
